In the summer of 2015, wildfires raged through Glacier National Park in Montana. Following the fires, there was an effort to measure the burn scars to create a baseline for forest regeneration and vegetation succession. Using Landsat 8 imagery from before and after the fire, you'll calculate the damage using a Normalized Burn Index, then publish the data as a feature class to share with others.
